Since returning to the court for Louisville, Gorgui Dieng is picking up right where he left off, prior to suffering a fractured wrist in November. Dieng is averaging 11 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3 blocks in his first three games back with the Cardinals. Those are some pretty impressive numbers for a guy who missed over a month of action. It’s just been three games, but in my opinion, Gorgui is playing better now than he was prior to getting hurt, particularly on the offensive end. Despite the impressive recent performances, Dieng is still looking to improve on the defensive end. Coach Pitino said last night in his post game press conference that Dieng’s timing is still not where it needs to be. When speaking to the media from the locker room, Dieng seemed to agree. “I need to block four or five shots a game,” he said. I think Gorgui is already playing better than we expected at this point. Just imagine when he is finally 100% and no longer has to wear the soft cast on his wrist.
